Well I finally got around to drawing again. Its been a few years since I've done more than a doodle every now and then but since I'm now working somewhere that I literally sit in a room doing nothing for 6 and a half hours I have a lot of free time! Sorry for the terrible quality pictures I only have a cell currently for a camera. I only noticed after I took a pic of the portrait one that the eye is too high, too bad I like to draw with pens :S. May do some more on that one. Please critique I'd like to get better

Looking good! I love the second one especially ;)

They look very nice. And props to you for drawing in pen. Scares me too much to try!
I really like the second one. And like you said, fix the hindquarters a lil bit and it's set. For the first one in addition to the eye I noticed that the nose should be a little bigger. This is actually a problem that I have. I do the entire drawing, finish, then come back the next day and can't figure out why it looks so...'off'. That's usually when I call my mom and ask her to take a look at it. First words usually are, the nose isn't big enough. I have to make it a point as I draw it out to concentrate on the nose.
But you pretty much critiqued yourself right on the dot. Look forward to seeing more!

What a nice critique by midwestern girl! I agree with her , though I like the first drawing better. The nostril is much too small, but the treatment of the ears and eyes is superb.

You've been inspired by this guy like many, many other people, huh? This ol' stallion sure gets around. I remember attempting him once, too, though I'm pretty sure the evidence is long since destroyed!

My attempt was in seventh grade, if I recall, and probably looked more like this:
